Kolkata, Nov 23, 2016: The main conspirator behind the attack on Hindu community and other religious minorities in Bangladesh is Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, feels the noted writer and rights activist Shahriar Kabir.
Being one of the key men behind the movement for the trial of the 1971 war criminals and against fundamentalism and communalism in his country, Kabir says, by doing this, the Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh was trying to destabilise the nation and show it in a bad light, mentioned PTI.

To wipe out non-believers of Islam has been the main agenda of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh. “They are attacking not only religious minorities in Bangladesh like Hindus and Christians but also secular Muslims who do not subscribe to their view,” Kabir told PTI.
Needless to say that the Jamaat, along with Jamaat ul Mujahidden Bangladesh are organising the attacks on Hindus. “They want to portray our country in poor light. The present government is trying its best to protect the minorities. They have taken stern steps against Jamaat and JMB activists,” he added.

Currently, Kabir is on an India tour for his documentary movie “Journey to Justice” that deals with the genocide, which took place during the 1971 liberation war in Bangladesh.
In early November, a series of attacks took place on people belonging to Hindu community and their property in Bangladesh. Miscreants had set ablaze some of their houses as well as damaged two temples in central Brahmanbarhia district, where numerous places of worship of the minority community were vandalised.
